Stillness vs. MovementWe often speak about the energetic effects that we can have on things around us – if we are developed or connected in our lives. That can seem hard to imagine sometimes, but it might be more clear when we think about someone who is comfortable in an emergency situation. The fact that they are not in a panic, and that they can take charge, can bring relief and calm to everyone in the room. We could say that person has a development in that specific area of their life – usually through prior experience. In spiritual development, our connections could allows us that ability to give what is energetically needed in any type of situation – whether we’ve experienced it before, or not.

John: In the meditation one really goes on an extreme and sets the tone. In the meditation dream I am shown the importance of an energetic unfoldment whenever I take in more than what I expect. When I take an unfoldment for granted, I am apt to get in the way of a natural process.

By holding onto the outer unfoldment, I get in the way of life’s natural ebb and flow, energetically. See, so I’m above all of this in a way; I’m in a different state, which makes me feel almost crazy.

I am meant to embrace the flow from within, and not experience the unfoldment as a kind of outer agreement world duality. I hurt myself over and over when I conduct myself as if I am entitled, instead of appreciating the natural overall unfoldment from within.

So, in the first dream, big story on this first dream, I’m in a large building. It’s kind of like a brick building. I guess you’d consider it a humongous house, although it doesn’t look like a house. It looks like an apartment building or something. It’s got halls in it and stuff like that, but I guess it’s more like a big house.

And it’s very late at night. Everyone’s in bed, and I suddenly notice a change in the energy, something’s about to happen. And, as I look out the window, I see a bunch of guys who are racing along, as if they’re militia or something, but they’re like a gang, and they are breaking into the buildings.

And they have it down to a timing. They’re break in and abduct everybody, and torture them or whatever they do, and they knock off building after building in ten seconds or less. And so I see them coming. I see how fast they’re going, and so I look for a place to hide.

I go into the corner of what would be my father’s bedroom, although I don’t see him in bed and there’s like a little well or like a depression where light comes out. You know you see those often times along sidewalks or something where there’s a cut down, a lower spot.

Well, this bedroom has a little lower spot like that, and a light down there. And there happens to be a bunch of mesh wire, so I jump down in that hole and pull this mesh wire over the top to hide myself down there. I don’t have time to do anything else. You know, I don’t even have time to address the light down there. I’m going to have to hope that it doesn’t shine through the mesh. In and of itself, why would anyone disturb the wire mesh laying there, unless they had a reason to?

So the bad dudes break into the place, abduct everyone, and go about whatever it is that they’re doing in terms of terrorizing, and torturing, or whatever it is that they’re doing. Unfortunately the light does shine through the mesh, and so the leader of the banditos sees this and says, “El macho” which I take to mean man of the house hiding down there.

Yeah, it had more than just that. Yeah, it did. You’re not going to pull the wool over his eyes. So he pulls off the mesh and I’m abducted. But he doesn’t torture me like the others, and we even seem to carry on a conversation in a normal way. And the whole time he has my sister all twisted and contangled in knots, as he’s doing his thing, afflicting people.

But I’m calm through all of it. It’s as if nothing’s going on. I’m just casually talking saying, “Well, I saw you guys coming. I happen to be up even though everyone was asleep.” And I’m indicating that I was watching them and I say, “What did you guys give yourself in terms of timing, ten seconds or so to break in to each place?” You know, just real casually, it is what it is, and his reply is, “Yeah, that’s about right.” So I mean you have this chitty chatty rapport.

Then suddenly, I don’t know, out of the blue, I guess the panhandlers are out late at night, and there’s this panhandler and he comes by and he acts as if, there’s people, maybe he can get a handout? And his eyes get really big as he sees what is going on but, you know, he’s an idiot. He is harmless, but still could be a problem from what he saw.

And so I say to the big boss, the main bandito, “I wouldn’t let him go if I were you. He looks like a problem. I mean he reacted, see? He could blither away somehow.” Of course this guy notices it, too.

He grabs the guy. He acts like he’s infuriated, pulls out a knife like he’s going to kill him on the spot – but he can’t do that. He’s not quite that kind of guy. And then he says to himself, that in the future, in other words if something were to happen and he’s caught and he’s brought before justice for prosecution, because he’s adequately terrorized everybody, that he can see five abstentions meaning, you know, they won’t say anything because they don’t know what could possibly happen if they talked. And then one person who talks, and of course that could be this guy.

And so he then, as if he’s commenting about it all, as if he’s reviewing everything in the scenario and he’s saying, everyone that he’s dealing with is acting according to Hoyle. You know, they get terrorized, they take all of this stuff going literally. But he indicates that he’s impressed by one man, and I know that that’s me because nothing fazes me. I’m not freaked out like everyone else. I’m just going along with the situation in a calm and balanced way.

The meaning is, the dream is portraying a demeanor that is able to take into account everyone as they are with an understanding and acceptance. To be like this is to reside beyond self-imposed limitations.

I see myself as being everything. In other words, I’m in an all-pervasive wholeness. I am like that because I do not subrogate my nature. By subrogate means repress and do some sort of cram down which is where you get all caught up in the affairs of the outer. That’s another way of looking at subrogation. And whenever you suppress something, then your natural energetic, which is all-inclusive, then is confined to having to sustain the energetic to keep something hidden, repressed, defense mechanism.

I am able to notice idiosyncrasies; ordinarily you don’t notice them because you’re shut down yourself. You’re always looking at yourself, kind of thing. When you think you’re looking at something, you can’t actually see it straightaway, but I’m able to notice the idiosyncrasies but do not judge or shut down. In that regard, I am like a light that is not put out. Or another twist on el macho, the main man, able to resonate a stillness into the overall.

alienation-judith-redmanIn this dream there’s a journey and the main character has a pretty good sense of where he’s supposed to be – he’s even been given directions – yet he still gets sidetracked from the path. He ducks into a house and it seems as though he’s stealing something, or trying to get away with something. Isn’t that a good metaphor for an inner journey, when we get sidetracked by our own personal idiosyncrasies, and worse, think no one will notice. In the end, it’s not what is happening around us, but in us that matters.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And in the meditation dream it starts off where I see myself coming up an alley. In other words, there’s a bunch of houses and whatnot to the left and to the right, and I’m kind of in an alley.

And to the left I can see someone kind of in their kitchen but they are not looking out, and I then slip into the back door of a place across from this house in which the owner, and I believe it’s a woman who lives there by herself, is not there because she’s working.

And I don’t know who she is; I just, for some reason, am there to do something. Whether I’m a thief or whatever, I’m not really sure. What is going on is, is I’m not sure, in terms of the way I’m fumbling about at this point, I’m not sure that I’m not catching up with how things need to be specifically, although earlier during the day I’d been given directions on how to get to where I need to go.

And what I had been shown is that I take and I go down this particular road that takes me out of the outskirts of kind of a rural subdivision area, which is where I’m in right now having gone into this house. This is not in a city.

And then I go up the road a little bit and then I take a left onto a dirt road and I go a couple of blocks. It doesn’t look like you’re going anywhere. By doing that, I end up on the edges of a town at a place where I’m meant to go.

So I kind of know where I’m going in a longer, bigger consequence of things, but in terms of the direct effect of the situation in front of me, that’s where I’m still yet confused. In other words, to get there I have to get beyond some limitation up front in order to reach a point to where the road is there and it all comes back to me. And I then can proceed and then get to where I’m meant to go.

So, in a roundabout way, what I need to be able to do is to be able to sit and settle back and be quiet and be able to wait. I mean that would be kind of nice I suppose because I do have it in me and I would be able to note that way. But in my amnesia, I guess I don’t know that.

And so I go inside through the back door and sitting by the front door is a dog. It doesn’t even pay any attention to me, and he’s waiting by the front door for his master to come home. And then I suddenly realize that there’s a time that I must leave to kind of figure out how to get back and aligned to getting to where I need to go.

And as I realize I need to leave, it is at that moment that I notice the dog is getting a bit excited so I know the owner is coming back and the dog is sensing it. And so I have to quickly pick up whatever it was that I had brought in with me and set down, which seems like it’s my dream book. So I seem to scramble around and find it.

And so then I go out the back door before I can be discovered and then I walk along the front of the house, figuring, okay, this person has now come in and I’m just missing them. In the front of the house is kind of a playground area for the locals, for kids and even adults are there.

As I walk through that, I’m clearly visible if the person senses something is wrong when they come inside, they look out the window, they see me, and they’ll realize, ah hah, I’m the person that doesn’t belong, that doesn’t make sense, and if they were to yell out of course then, these people could all jump me.

There is no way I can get away because in this dream I’m old man. I don’t move very fast. So beyond this area I pass through kind of a forested dense area and when I get there I know now that I am hidden. I should be safe because then if the person senses and looks around I can’t be seen and it’s too late for anybody to grab or nab me.

But, as circumstances would have it, because I carry this kind of vibration that was a quality of this wayward sense where it deviated, like I had deviated going in the back of a house and in other words doing things that kind of keep you in an amnesia because you’re distorting how it is that you’re picking up things. I took and carried it as kind of a trait.

It’s a vibration similar to what a person does to themselves when they shoplift and they walk outside and, first of all, there’s the rush of having gotten out of the store. And then there’s the excitement and the apprehension of having gotten away with something, but one still has this racing in their chest a bit and they have to get beyond, out of sight, around a corner.

Well then when you get away you can get the sense that you got away but you didn’t really get away. What you did was you screwed something up in terms of an energetic mannerism in your soul. You set in motion some other forces by taking and doing this kind of ripping and tearing – and that’s what causes this next scene to be what it is.

Suddenly there are two guys who are following me, and they’re following me not because of what I did or anything, they’re following me because they’ve identified me as someone that is back this hidden, dense wooded area now – where no one can notice – and they can rob me. They can easily catch me and take what I have because I can’t outrun them or get away.

In fact, it would be foolish to even try. And so that’s what they do. And then, because they think that they have gotten away with something because that was an easy pickings, one of them then goes a short distance and, to my surprise, here I am strolling along as a watcher – going really slow because I’m an old man – and to my shock and surprise it happens to them. In other words, someone comes up who is actually much wealthier than they are, doesn’t need what they have, and takes from them something.

Now, what was interesting is it required a certain kind of social dues to be paid, and so this person paid a tribute fee. And had the guy known that this guy he accosted had already accosted me and had more and could have given more, then that would have happened as well, all of that would have been taken from him.

So, what isn’t readily seen is that I had gotten more or less twisted around by going into this area because I was thinking that I needed something more before going home, and that’s what kept me in this out-of-touch residential area as I’m on the way to a road nearby, I have a clear vision of where that is going to take me so that I then can come back to a more conscious part of myself in terms of where I am meant to be proceeding. In other words, I will then find myself attuned to the flow and can then find the lodging that I seek.

So the issue of a dream like this is when you have these vagary qualities of your nature that blot out a clear perception of something inside, in terms of where you’re going, are you up to the challenge of going through all of that in order to be able to actually handle how the journey needs to unfold?

So the meaning of the dream is the effort and struggle I notice in my being is estranging me from the whole. A failure to be at ease is a formula for a disaster. If I go around carrying a self-limiting vibration, in other words, when I do this wayward thing just like when a thief shoplifts they have no idea the damage they do to their soul. You just go into being lost or out of it.

The difference however is I do carry inside of myself a sense that if I proceed a little bit I can intuit my way to a spot that I then will know how to carry on from there. So what I am is kind of alienated and separate and when one’s like that then you are violated by the delirium that you still identify with as opposed to staying within the core of the main vibration of your being, a being that is in sync with all of life.

And so the sensation then is that it’s like, when you break through this amnesia, it’s like being able to go beyond where you belong – but that’s not the case. The case is you’re just playing in a dumbed-down state, checked out, and not as close to an inner consciousness as you’re meant to be.

So even though I have an idea of where it is I need to be getting to, that is sitting there kind of echoing in some depth inside of myself, embodying that is not possible as long as there is a paranoia or uneasiness that seems to dictate over me. And it kind of checkmates or vetoes how I’m able to be, how it is that I’m able to recognize or open up or fully live what it is that is unconsciously triculating for me to know.

In other words, knowing when to go out for lodging that is available for me, knowing about that a bit, is not much help when I lack the energetic means to get there safely, which is kind of a dumb statement because it’s using the dynamics of the dream image, but it is kind of true, too, in that I have adopted something, much like a shoplifter adopts something when they walk out thinking that they have pulled off or gotten away with a certain mannerism, and that gets in the way of holding a deeper focus.

The deeper meaning is that I’m having this dream as confirmation for what I already know is coming. In other words, through my ignorance and stupidity I even sense that there’s more – whether I can get there or not.

So in the dream I try to stay invisible, in other words not affected by things, but I fail. To go where I need to go I have to let go of everything. In this way I come to recognize that other part triculating inside and, in this way, where I go then is kind of like something that is destined to be.

It’s the nature of how everything has this wholeness to it that is an unfolding destiny that takes into account and is knowable from a sense of a much bigger picture – providing I quit reverberating in some sort of acting-up way.

sharpenWe are all the characters in our dreams and, as we saw yesterday (see Self-Correction), Jeane was given a remedy – in the form of pills – as a way to deal with an inner issue she is facing. Here, John sees a problem, yet from a masculine perspective thinks he can’t do anything about it. And that’s the right process for him – the timing isn’t quite there for the awakening energies to be balanced. There is more change that needs to occur first. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, now you want to know what the problem is? It’s only a problem from the masculine’s perspective. None of these problems are problems, really. It’s just kind of how things are in the subtle energetic of life. They’re there so that a conscious way to shift and shape things can happen.

So in this dream, I’m asleep in a vacation cabin that is a cabin that’s owned by this friend of mine, and he’s had to leave or go somewhere. So his wife is behind, I’m in a bed, and she’s in a bed, and there might be another person that’s passed out that’s in the cabin, too.

Outside of this place is a guy that’s supposed to take care of the outer and make sure everything is secure. Apparently there are wild animals, or dangerous animals, that prowl around, and him safeguarding from the outside kind of keeps this sort of stuff at bay. So he represents a raw energy of things.

Well, he comes into the house and obviously concludes that the other guy is passed out, and he assumes that I’m probably in the same condition, but I’m pretending to be more asleep than I am. And the woman is kind of awake, but she doesn’t seem to, because he’s under the employ of her husband, doesn’t see that there’s any problem, and so she even kind of talks to him a bit and what he does is completely inappropriate.

He starts going through the drawers and looking for this, that, and the other, and she doesn’t seem to be at all alarmed about it, but I could tell what he’s doing. He’s looking for something to steal. And he thinks that he has total control of the situation, that I’m checked out, and she’s naïve.

I kind of lay there just seeing how far this is going to go. Now, this part I don’t remember what happened that came up and arrested him, so to speak, in terms of jumping up and doing something. But what I do remember is the effect of whatever was done. And it’s now morning, that part is a skip in the dream.

And the woman thinks that I’ve gone too far, and I say to her, “If I hadn’t done what I did and stopped him, you wouldn’t be alive today.” She just doesn’t get it. What I know is that he would have either found something to steal, and then would have had to kill her so that there would be no one that could report on him, or if he didn’t find anything to steal there was nothing to keep him from taking advantage of her.

And so what I assume and see and believe would have happened is if he hadn’t stolen something he could have done whatever he wanted to do, thinking that I was passed out and no one was there to be attentive, and then kill them.

And so it seems that I’m the only one who realizes how treacherous and dangerous this guy is, in his intent when he came inside. When he was on the outside in the outer was one thing, but when he tried to come to the inside of the thing, to the subtler energies of things, it was too much for him.

And the dream ends where we have traveled, I mean he’s been a prisoner and we’ve traveled to another place, and I and another person are in the basement of this house, and we have this guy down there in the basement. And the time has come when he needs to be brought to the top, brought out, you know basically, I suspect, turned over to the authorities.

And so this other person says that, it’s okay, that I can go upstairs because he can handle this guy and he’ll bring him up in a minute. But I know better, and I say to him, “We need to both bring this guy up.”

See the thing is, again this is another scenario in which I can tell this thief is laying back down acting as if he’s been subdued, but if he rises up and attempts to escape he’ll overpower this guy. It’s going to take the both of us to bring him up.

So the simple meaning of the dream is the dream is saying that there is a raw energy that is not well understood by others – by other parts in myself, anyway, that are less aware and, as a consequence, because there’s a letting up or not being attentive in that regard, something is about to rise up and destroy what exists.

And this raw energy is supposed to be taking care of the external state of affairs, but has gotten out of control and has invaded a situation, or entered the house, and is seeking to take over. This raw energy is of the opinion that there is nothing that can be done to stop it from having its way.

In other words, from what it sees it thinks it has the situation scoped out and, if it acts out, or is allowed to fully act out, its mannerism is such as it will destroy the fabric of what exists, as it sees things.

So, in the dream, I am the only one who realizes how dicey this has gotten, in other words, that more conscious part of myself can sense this stuff going on. But then there’s the feminine part that’s naïve, and then there’s the other part that’s checked out, and then there’s also the part that’s kind of seeing how far it will go before it suddenly springs to life and acts.

I guess you might say that fortunately there’s a more conscious side that understands this raw energy and what it is capable of doing, which knows how to handle it, and things have progressed to the point where it is now time to bring this raw energy into the light of day – because it’s being now brought up from down below.

And of course this energy is kundalini energy and you have to work with that. You don’t take and snuff it, or stamp it, or repress it – you have to work with it. With a teacher, for example, every time it sees a student act up, the teacher realizes that this is raw energy and that the teacher has to figure out how to play with that, how to work with that.

Maybe there’s a point where enough is enough, or in the case this guy was arrested by us, but at the same time you play with that raw energy. You don’t obliterate it.

So how does this apply? I can see how in present life, in existence now, that there’s an energetic quality jeopardizing the current scenario. I can feel it. I have yet to put my feelings directly upon it.

On the surface I am of the opinion that this is manageable because I am able to see it. What I’m talking about is an example of this blindside. A bigger macro example has to do with a tenuousness that is brought on in society by the economics of things, the politics of things, even the way sports energy flies around.

Those associations, and way of life images, have their way of anesthetizing and afflicting things in the fabric in life that keeps things kind of destabilized, keeps things kind of numb or dumb. Not seeing these forces for what they are tends to undermine existence, or the flow in the outer, of the status quo.

This in turn affects the way I relate, in that the tendency is to remain asleep because you’re hit with this and you kind of want it to go – you think that it all runs its course, given passage of time – and of course that is the course of least resistance.

This is also the course that, little by little, leads to a tearing down of a state of order and balance in the Whole. In other words, that’s going on, you’re seeing it. What I’m doing is reporting but I can’t do anything about it, but you’re reporting that you can. On some level you have the robes, the state, and you have the pills to do it.

And then I wrote: I am seeing this from a point within that is able to sense the way the energy is slowly unfolding, but that doesn’t mean that this is something that is able or going to change, nor am I going to change it.

Because anything I might do, or even talk about, or even anything, I live with it. It’s kind of like an awkwardness that just has to be. It actually has a useful purpose behind it, too. It’s part of the sharpening of a consciousness. It’s part of the awakening process to go through it.

For the masculine, it’s a type of longing, it’s a type of thing that on the flip side and the blindside is the hearkening to something that eventually is able to come through. So I don’t know what you call that, but it is part of the process nevertheless, and so you don’t take and slam it in any direct regard because then that hurts something.

There is a quality in there that’s wonderful as well, even though one can look at it as out of balance, or bizarre, or something. It’s there for a reason and it has its importance, and if you do something to change it you will affect the psyche of life. So I can’t do anything about it; I just know that that’s what would happen.
